Nico Rosberg has confirmed that this weekend's Abu Dhabi GP will be his final  outing for the Williams F1 team. Rosberg, who has raced for Sir Frank Williams' outfit for the last five years, stated that he wanted to win races and wasn't sure whether the team could provide him with a race-winning car. Nico is likely to join Brawn GP or McLaren Mercedes in 2010.

Meanwhile, Rubens Barrichello might just head to Williams after a mixed year at the Brawn GP team. And Toyota driver Timo Glock is rumoured to be in talks with Renualt to partner Robert Kubica in 2010.
 
Kimi Raikkonen, who has given up his seat at Ferrari to make way for double world champion Fernando Alonso, is still considering his options. Raikkonen has declared that the only team he would actually consider racing for is McLaren. However, the Iceman also says he might consider switching to WRC or taking a sabbatical. Well, we certainly hope he won't quit F1 - things just won't be the same without the Iceman!
